Preparing for Amazing August!!

Monday, July 28, 2014
11 year-old Brendon was baptized! I got to confirm him a member of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and give him the gift of the Holy Ghost. Awesome!

The sweetest kid! Future missionary!

Brendon was baptized by his neighbor and good friend, Patrick
Hello all!

A good end to a good week!

Today we spent the day celebrating Hari Raya!! The end of the fasting month of Ramadan.... so we just ate and ate and ate and ate from 10 to 4:30 pm. 6 houses eating.... yummmmmmmmmmmmy that's basically celebration here. Just eating hahaha

Weekly highlight: Brendan anak Linang was baptized and received the Gift of the Holy Ghost - following Christ's instruction to be born of water and of the Spirit. He's the ripe old age of 11 years old. He really has a desire to do good and follow Christ, and I hope that someday he will serve a mission! He's a good friend of mine. I love the kid! We had been teaching him for the past couple weeks. 

This upcoming week, we will be presenting Amazing August - Miri's version of Miracle May. So get ready baby! It's Amazing August! We're stoked. Get readdddddddddy for the miracles to start coming again! It's also a great time to start learning about why everyone's joining this crazy church if you haven't yet, or to help the missionaries in your ward. It's Amazing August. Start praying for people you can help the missionaries teach!!

Elder Stewart and I are working hard and can't wait to see the Lord work with the members as they get motivated and pumped to share the gospel! This really works. I just heard from Elder Yang additional news about Tawau - in the past 3 months, they baptized 10 people and have even more on the way and more potential!! So this approach really works. The members are the key to missionary work!!! It's a fact!

I know this is the work of God on the earth and He heads this work!! I'm grateful to be a part of it, and I know as I work with the Lord, He can accomplish miracles through me and my imperfect efforts.

Love you all!
